IC: Chronn

 

"That list of yours, it may list what was stolen, but look deeper. What do the items say about the person who took them, what do you know about the criminal, or criminals, based upon the information you currently posses?" I remarked, looking around the room as if bored, but beneath the facade, my interest had been growing.

 

"Think abut the scene they were taken from. Has badly had it been disturbed? Was everything thrown about and misplaced, or was it relatively untouched? That alone can tell you how the person thinks, and by connection what they would contain the items in if trying to quickly transport them." I smirked slightly, leaning back in the chair once more. "But no, I suppose I do not have anything more to say on the matter. You may be on your way."

[color=#4b0082;]"Bula juice canteens, check. Sun lens, got it. Dried edibles, yep. Drill and shield, never put 'em down. Explos--"[/color] He stopped as he remembered. He wasn't a miner anymore, so he didn't need explosives. [color=#4b0082;]"No explosives, then. Trenchcoat, wearing it. Widgets, can't go without 'em. Lightstones, yeah. Bongos, mhm. Alright, that ought to do it."[/color] With that, he slipped the small stuff into his many pockets, hung his shield and bongos on his back, his drill at his side, and slung his bag over his shoulder. The ensemble was cumbersome, but manageable. With that, he struck out towards the Onu-Le-Wahi tunnel.

[color=rgb(105,105,105);]But for some reason, every single Mahiki on the island seemed to have vanished. A fact that really, truly, majorly ###### it off. But it would make-do. it had to.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(105,105,105);]And to do that, it had to change. The Toa of Sonics wasn't who it used to be. Or who it used to not be. Demothi had been everyone, and no one. I*t had been people that existed, and people that didn't. It wasn't living in the same sense as everyone else. Because Demothi had been as real as it had not.[/color]

 

[color=rgb(105,105,105);]But everything had changed when it lost its Mahiki. Everything. That mask was more than a mask to its. It was one of two things that it truly was. Illusion and apathy. With illusion gone, it only had apathy left. Until it stole its Huna. [/color]

 

[color=#696969;]Half of its was completely dead. Half of its was reborn.[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]More soon changed. Its apathy gave way to anger. It cared whether or not people died now. Only now it actively promoted it.

The name [/color][color=#000000;]Phantom[/color][color=#696969;] [/color][color=rgb(105,105,105);]is guaranteed to come up. They'll tell you how to contact it.

Aenarius had gotten used to the lack of sunlight, but as he sat eating breakfast he couldn't shake the idea that it was still night. He wore minimal armor: cuirass, vambrace and cuisse, and sat a little slouched at his table in the inn where he was staying. His element had allowed him to find some work in the forges, but this was his day off, and he felt a little torn. To be true, he missed Ta Koro: the light and the heat, the familiar faces and locations, his work as a guard. But there was no going back. Onu Koro was as good a home as any, he felt, even if he couldn't quite convince himself to stay. Find a better job, move into a hut or room somewhere else...

 

He got to his feet abruptly. Sitting inside for long had never been his thing and, even if outside was technically as inside, he felt like moving. His hand on the everpresent mace, he walked out the door. 

 

Outside, Onu Koro felt as it always did: like a city in the evening that had not yet shut down, but still churned on in need of rest. That feel had irked him to no end at first, but now he hardly registered it. He walked slowly, looking at the bridge ahead. He missed the beaches of Ta Wahi, but the stream that flowed through the Koro was a comforting and relaxing place.

IC (Matan and Natan): "It's to do with a new invention we've been working on" Matan explained "around this new electrical technology that's been developed lately. We've been waiting for a chance to test it out".

 

Moving into the corner of the workshop, he dragged out what appeared to be a large metal sphere on top of a sturdy rod, and set it up in the centre of the workshop. He opened a section of the pole to show what was inside. A band of elastic plant fibres was wrapped around a pair of pulleys running up and down the shaft. At the top pulley, the band came near to (but didn't quite touch) a collection of thin wires, which eventually ran up to join onto the sphere at the top of the device (which turned out to be hollow). The bottom pulley could be spung by a system or gear leading to a large crank poistioned just outside the main body of the machine.

 

OOC: Basically, its a crude Van de Graaf generator.

 

IC: Matan closed the section again and stood well back from the device, as did Natan. "I'll explain it in a moment, but for now, could you go over there and stand with your hands about so far away from the sphere?" He indicated a distance of a couple of fingersbreadths.

IC (Matan and Natan): "That'serfect" Natanreplied, and used his elemental power to make the crank spin wildly (he had discovered it wasn't wise to do it by hand) and the machine began to wind up, slowly producing a gentle hum of motion from its insides. After about 10 seconds or so, a small arc of electricity leapt from the sphere at the top of the device towards Ferron's palm.

 

This effect wasn't anything new to the Skakdi, but the reason they wanted to do more tests (without getting shocked themselves) was to find out how far away from the device they could get the spark to jump, and if the technology could be scaled up for more practical uses.

IC (Matan and Natan): "It produces small arcs of electricity, obviously" Matan replied, as calm as ever. "However, this is only a prototype device, and the range isn't very good yet. Now, would you mind moving your hand back a handspan or so for the next test? We need to determine exactly how far away the target can be before it doesn't work anymore."

 

OOC: If it makes it any better, this is far from the worst these two have done to a customer in exchange for their services. Poor, poor Auron... good times though. :)

IC (Matan and Natan): "You can use the other hand if you wish" Matan advised as Natan cranked up the machine again. This time, however, no matter how fast the band spun, no spark was produced. The distance from the sphere to the toa's hand was too great for the electricity to jump.

"Well, there's our limit then" Natan observed. "It's still pretty weak, but maybe we could improve it by playing around with the sizes of the components or the materials. That can wait for another time though. Thankyou for your assistance, toa."

[color=#696969;]He took out the map of Onu-Koro that he still had from his last visit, and examined it. Eventually locating the diner that he and Krell had smashed up the last time they were there...[/color]

[color=#696969;]Ferron sighed, and looked up at the metaphorical skies to where Krell was hopefully having a well-deserved rest. Just because he'd come to terms with the kid's death didn't mean he still missed him sometimes.[/color]

IC: Ashiem

 

"I only moved here recently," replied Ashiem, sitting down and taking a bowl of noodles and dumpling soup, handing over several widgets. "The Horseman Company was kind enough to give me a job; it's pretty well-paying."

 

She really liked the village; sure, she barely ever saw the sun any more, but it was cosy and never cold. Winter's effects could not reach below the island. She liked the people too - they were stubborn at times, but they were pretty welcoming to guests.

 

"So, what brings you here?"

 

Even though she doubted that she'd see her companion again, to her minor chagrin (The Toa of Lightning was really growing on her. Like a fungus. From the dark depths of Le-wahi.), she was curious on what Elianne's purpose was in the village of earth.

"It would be easier if you had a place to start, I suppose."

IC: Interitio
 
He stood peacefully in the alleyway behind a building, a calmness over his whole demeanor. His mind was in thought, thinking of important connections as he waited. It was the world itself that held his interests; not merely that which existed around him, but across the entire island, he could almost see it playing out in his head. The world around him acted in such a mechanical way, like a well oiled machine. It never missed a beat, always ticking away with an unnatural dullness, and yet unmatched efficiency.  Occasionally something would occur that brought about a disruption to this cycle, that sent the living gears into a worried frenzy. This was the time when the cycle was most worth observing; when the gears clashed against each other violently, when one stopped working and others were slowed because of it.  Such occasions were rarer than could be hoped, as soon as one occurred, it was over and the parts began their cycle once more. 
 
It was interesting how little it took to shake an island to its foundations, but how shortly it would hold. Rahkshi attacks had proven a large disruption, but they were ended and life quickly returned to the smoothness that was its base. The power revealed was too great to be able to remain, it was certain to crumble away into oblivion as the status quo returned anew. That is where his plan differed; there was no need to rush into the fray, to bring about ruination with resounding force. He would slowly remove the gears, one by one, and by the time the missing pieces started to worry the machine, it would already be too late. And sometimes, the gears merely had to be turned against each other, letting them twist and writhe until one of them found itself disconnected from the machine of life.
 
Each time a large disruption occurred, the gears did not fit exactly as they had been before, sometimes some were missing or had moved on to another part of the machine. It was always interesting to see how it would adapt to changes, filling in the blanks after majorly chaotic events. If this ability to reform could be abused, then what was to stop one from filling in the pieces with their own, taking a personal hand in shaping the way the world would run. Like a puzzle just awaiting the guiding hands to make it into something far more. The shape he planned to craft, it would be beyond anything seen before. A shattered machine that could not run, laying broken as gears turn about wildly, struggling to find some place to which they could return. 
 
He slowly opened his eyes to the world, the weakest hints of weariness crossing his hidden face. It would not be the easiest of tasks, as the gears had their own thoughts of placement, the puzzle would always try to build itself if the pieces were not quickly placed, and it would build itself as it always had. The monotony of life was one that most seemed to enjoy, thinking that small changes were amazingly unique. He saw through that, but he did not care to break free, he had much more important goals. He would twist life until he could look into it and see himself reflecting back. But like all good things, that required a sacrifice, some would have to give their lives towards bringing about the future.
 
It was time to start again; bringing death to those who never knew it awaited them. The deaths would be more and more noticeable  no longer conserved to the obscure few who lived scattered across the island, seemingly unconnected. It was time to stain the streets of the island with blood, blood of the innocent and the guilty. Their blood would pour out as life slipped away, creating a stain of red across the island itself, one that would never truly fade away. Their blood would pave the path that he wished to travel, leading towards his ultimate goals. The pathway of blood as death screamed out, tearing life away from those who so desperately clung to it, would give him everything he needed to mold the world.
 
Now, it was merely the time to wait. A message had been sent out to all those who still stood under the banner of NEX, and to all of those who may wish to join. It was time for them to meet, to discuss the future that they would bring about. He merely had to wait inside the darkness of the alleyway, and they would arrive. There were important things awaiting those who killed and left the tablets behind, a future that they would help bleed out. There were people who had to die, tablets to be placed on their corpses. It was a busy world, and to counter that, you had to be just as busy. The time between the first piece of his plan, and this second piece, had been long awaited, and he knew that it was time.
 
And one, one mission was very special. It was unlike all of those that had come before it, a new horizon  It was the first true step towards the future he wanted, and there would be no tablets placed at the scene, no sign that NEX had even been involved. It was beyond merely a killing for show, it was time for the threat to become real. The island would fear, they would hate. It would not be NEX that they struck out against, but each other. It was time for fear to grip the island, as death arrived in full force.

He paused for a little while by the bridge, staring into the dark water. looking up he saw a figure approaching.

 

[font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]"A good morning, Turaga," he said, giving a respectful bow to the approaching elder.[/font]

[color=#696969;][font="'times new roman', times, serif;"]Getting to Onu Koro had been Karzahni. Even worse had been finding his way around it. But those headaches he didn't register as he observed the small inn. Rather, a sense of victory prevailed: he had found his target. Said target was not here, and he would have to think of a strategy of dispatching him without drawing much attention.[/color][/font]

IC:

 

Onu-Koro had changed.

 

That much was obvious as Tarnok stepped out of the hospital, but it was still remarkable. Only three months had passed, and yet Onu-Koro had become the dominant industry on the island, with all others relying on them for technology and engineering. But that was not all of it; The spirit of the place had changed, too. The village had spent months languishing in its own grief and pain, suffering loss after loss, pain after pain, from bombings to assassinations, and even beyond. But now it was thriving again. People moved with purpose, with meaning in each step, going about their daily business.

 

They had not forgotten, however. None of them had forgotten what it had cost them to get this far, and the people that had payed in blood that they might get the future they sought.

 

Among them was Tarnok's own squadron. Many had lost their lives, and the others were otherwise incapacitated. Only two remained on active duty, one was Tarnok himself, and the other was Gavarm. In a way, one other was still present; Sulov had returned a hero, a Toa. One of the only ones, in the Onu-Matoran's opinion, who truly lived up to the title. But he had remained his own entity, he was Onu-Koro's Guardian now, not a member of the Ussalry. And that was as it should be.

 

Lost in his musings, the Onu-Matoran began his route through the city, watching for any signs of trouble. The village had thrived, but with success, there was always crime.

 

Always.

"What with how much extra technology is being made? I'm wondering just how detrimental this will prove to the general outlook people have."[/color][/font]

IC: AarThe Ussalmatoran worked his way back towards the HQ to see where he could be of service. Since joining the Ussalry, he'd been enthusiastically doing his best. It quickly became clear that this was what he's been meant to do. Fighting and defending suited him much more than striking rocks. He saluted another Ussalmatoran he recognized to be Tarnok, and continued on his way.

[color=#808080;]IC: Zuriana[/color]

 

[color=#808080;]Ferron noticed, as he approached, that Zuriana and her neighbours' huts were quite different from the huts in their vicinity. Instead of the usual earthen domes, these ones were carved directly into the cavern wall. All that was visible of each were doors of various colours, dulled by years of dust and wear, and little portholes, from which shined welcoming orange light. It was quite unlike anything Ferron had seen before.[/color]

 

[color=#808080;]Inside, Zuria had just put the kettle on for a cup of tea when a knock echoed through to the kitchen doorway. At first, she found it irritating that someone would knock at this hour. However, upon opening her door (purple, her favourite colour), all of these irritations were immediately forgotten. For there, at the door, was Ferron, Toa of iron, whom she hadn't seen in quite close to three months. "Ferron...?" She muttered at first. "Is that really you?"[/color]

[color=#696969;]Ferron crouched down to the Matoran's level. Taking in what little of the interior he could glimpse from behind the chubby Matoran.[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]"Hello, Zuriana" he said, with the first real smile he'd managed in a long time "sorry I couldn't come earlier"[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]Ferron really had wanted to go see Zuria before, but all the stuff that'd been happening had cropped up so quickly that it was hard to even get any breathing room.[/color]

[color=#808080;]Zuria gave a little bow of the head. "It's absolutely fine, Ferron."[/color]

 

[color=#808080;]Looking past her, Ferron spied a lantern-lit hallway with curved wooden walls, a tiled floor and various wooden boxes, chests and cupboards. The whole hut seemed to be a small network of tunnels made livable, only just big enough for a Toa to fit inside (although their heads would scrape the ceiling). A small chandelier hung from the ceiling just inside the doorway.[/color]

 

[color=#808080;]Zuriana's eyes lit up as if remembering something. "Oh! Where are my manners? Come in, come in," she exclaimed, stepping aside to allow her friend inside.[/color]

IC: Thentyle

The orange and black Toa of Earth began asking local Onu-Matoran about work opportunities, or if help was needed. Unfortunately, all the work seemed to be taken by the Matoran and despite his superior strength to them it was insisted that he wasn't needed right now.

"Why don't you just ask one of the shops or something?" one of the many people he'd asked responded. "I'm sure one of them might have something, but there's no work for you here.""Bother." Thentyle muttered. He'd returned to his home and found it had changed beyond recognition, but could not sieze any opportunities. Reluctantly, he leaned against a hut in the middle of the Koro, beginning to think to himself.I want to help people...But what should I do if there's nobody to help? The last thing I want is to run around Onu-Wahi and become bored or something....A thought began snaking its way into Thentyle's mind. It was completely unimaginable to him, yet had a strange appeal.

Why not create a situation to save Matoran from?

It was an idea, even if he didn't like it. And the more Thentyle thought about it, the more seductive and enticing it became. Maybe...just a small pitfall or something? Surely that couldn't hurt. It would be fine...right?

OOC: I'm sensing a little Tolkien inspiration here  ;)

 

IC: [color=#696969;]Ferron (Zuria's Hut)[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]Squeezing through the entrance was a little tricky, but Ferron managed to maneuver his massive frame through the door and into the hallway where he just managed to stand upright. He avoided the chandelier as a smell hit his nostrils; the smell of warm food being slowly done over an open fire.[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]"Good timing, I'm starving" Ferron said as he wringed his hands expectantly.[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]He left his satcel by the wall as he looked towards the source of the smell.[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]He made a quick note of reaching into his satchel and gripping gently around the trinket he'd brought. Hand-carved from a lump of iron of his own creation. Using his powers, he gathered an imprint of the trinket deep within him, so that he may quickly call upon it later.[/color]

 

[color=#696969;]"Cozy place you have here" he added.[/color]
